Located on the El Camino Real do los Tejas, a route used by American settlers, San Augustine boasts many historic houses with connections to the Texas Revolution. One such house belonged to Ezekiel Wimberly Cullen, a legislator, jurist, and lawyer who joined the revolutionary forces and participated in the Siege of Béxar. An early plantation nearby belonged to William Garrett , a member of a Texas militia in 1836. E. O. Legrand’s Norwood-Legrand House has an unusual scalloped cornice at the front porch and free-standing columns. LeGrand was a signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence, as was Stephen William Blount, whose Republic-era house reflects his standing as county clerk and postmaster of San Augustine.
